Graeter's Opens New Storefront at CVG
Graeter’s Ice Cream, a 146-year-old family owned and operated craft ice cream brand, and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) have unveiled Graeter’s new location at the airport. Replacing the company’s current kiosk, which opened in 2013, Graeter’s store location is currently serving airport travelers with the superior service and menu of decadent pastries, candy and ice cream, for which the beloved Cincinnati-based company is known on a larger level.
Graeter’s new 657 square foot location is located in Concourse A of CVG. After amassing much praise from travelers since its opening in 2013, the updates to the storefront speak to the brand’s relevancy and continued growth in the community. The storefront ultimately puts Graeter’s in the position to serve a wider range of ice cream fans and will be open daily from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
“This new shop is a good indication of how well Graeter’s has done since its arrival to CVG,” says Candace McGraw, Chief Executive Officer of CVG. “It only makes sense to offer a Cincinnati favorite as a concession option in our hometown airport. We’re thrilled to see how well it has done, and are excited to see a brand that reflects our community continue to grow among all travelers.”
“We’re excited to expand our service to Greater Cincinnati travelers,” added Chip Graeter, fourth-generation owner. “We’ve built a beautiful new store and greatly expanded our selection of ice cream, candy and fresh bakery. We’re looking forward to many years of delighting our current customers as well as letting visitors from around the world experience Graeter’s for the first time.”
A location at CVG is a unique opportunity to serve international ice cream fans with a Cincinnati favorite that represents a taste of the city. As a local brand with close ties to the community, the partnership between Graeter’s and CVG presents opportunities for growth for both the ice cream brand and the airport while still bringing a sweet indulgence to travelers.
